Hello My Dear Darling Friends!
I thought that I was going to take a rest day. I worked hard all week long and even spent an hour mowing the lawn in the pouring down rain. It made me feel like a little kid as I felt the warm rain on my skin sloshing through those mud puddles. By the time I finished, I was soaked to the bone and I wasn’t even upset by it. I needed to get rained on.
It was a relaxing day in. We have been automating the business and coming out with 2.0 versions which is exciting. The rainy weather and the fact that we have a spare on until our new set of tires arrives, made it easy to stay in and enjoy being homebodies. By the time it was dark, I felt inspired to move my body. I didn’t want to do just a typical yoga practice so I decided to take another stroll down memory lane…
Workout of the Day: Jane Fonda’s New Workout + Yoga
Jane Fonda’s New Workout:
This brought me back to my childhood… Of course, being born in 1988 I don’t remember the 80’s and I didn’t start working out with my mom until the 90’s. She probably had Jane Fonda’s entire VHS collection. Last night, I had following this video and I pretty much remembered the entire routine by heart. I used to wake up early in the morning and do this exact video. It was fun to revisit it as a grown adult.
Kundalini Yoga Challenge Day #5/40: Beat the cravings
This was especially fitting because all of a sudden I felt like I was craving ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING. I wanted oatmeal raisin cookies, mashed potatoes and turkey, pizza, ice cream, Pumpkin pie, pho, cheesecake. I think seeing all of the holiday food and faire has backfired on me. I was able to settle into this practice and be more mindful of myself.
This practice was strenuous urging me to push my edges a little further than I thought possible. Afterwards, I felt less frantically ravenous. My partner offered to go with me to get whatever I wanted, but I decided to eat my salad and later on have one glass of cabernet as I read my book. I am glad I decided to do this rather than go out and gobble everything in sight.
Some would say ’tis the season, but I think that is not a good enough reason to abandon my goals.
Today’s Word of the Day is:
- Used in Edinburgh as a warning cry when it was customary to throw slops from the windows into the streets.
This is my 1st interjection and I like it! It creates a very “Beauty and the Beast esque” imagery.
What are your plans for this beautiful Sunday afternoon? I think that I will take some time to tidy my home. I have been so busy working that household chores have been minimal. The place is clean, but it could be more organized and more tidy.
